“They opened the doors and there were some trucks waiting and they transported us from the railroad station to Camp de’Gurs. Camp de’Gurs was already dark so we could not see much but we had seen barracks, just plain barracks. I don’t believe there are any American farmers who shelter their cattle in unbound barracks as Gurs was. When we were let into the main, men and women were separated. Men came first, they were A, B, C, D, E. Sections of I guess, 18 barracks. There was one section. There were fifty people in one barrack and one stove in the middle, two windows and two doors on each end. I think the barrack was about fifty feet long and twenty feet wide, eighteen feet wide. There was only straw on the floor, in the middle was a walkway and on each side straw. That was considered for our bed, where we could rest, where we could install ourselves and make it as comfortable as possible. There was no rack, no light in the barrack, no heat in the winter. The roads were muddy. In that area, it rained 300 days a year.”
